Customer Question
I have an Epson...

I have an Epson R3000 printer, and I'm using an Epson paper that is a semi gloss or luster. (Sorry...I can't find which one...have lots of boxes of papers and shouldn shouldn't have taken them out!). I'd like to print on the NON print side, but it's coming out blobby and messy. I've tried many settings. Anything I can do?

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your R3000?

Just since I tried the non printable side of this particular paper. The other side was fine. I reduced Saturation, but it only helped a little.

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update the Operating System (OS) on the computer or device you're printing from?

There is probably a reason the tag says "printable side!"
